a breath of fresh air

From Picture The Holidays,

The weather outside might be frightful but even with winter’s chill, fresh air is the best medicine. After shopping malls and gathering indoors so much this month, braving the elements, even just to snap a photo can be a perfect change of pace. Shoot one of Mother Nature’s gifts today. Something that boasts of the season and showcases the splendor of the great outdoors.

I braved the elements, alright. Winter has arrived and it’s brrrrrrrrr outside, despite the deceptive sunshine.

I can’t remember where I got the idea to hang mitts in a tree, but somebody nudged me about it. Whoever it was, thank you! This was fun, even if I did get a few weird looks. My mittens aren’t as focused as I’d like them to be, but I’m blaming it on the wind and my icy fingers. Yep.

Has winter arrived in your neck of the woods?

    I sort of like the bit of blur on the mittens… It actually lends a little extra frosty feeling to the pic… :-)

      I’m still sorry I missed last year’s version of the mitts. They were WAY cute.
